Recap: The Simpsons S 15 E 16 The Wandering Juvie

Bart gets sent to juvenile hall, where he is dragged into escaping with a female prisonmate.

Tropes:

  • Foreshadowing: Cletus demonstrates the ability to foresee events before they happen and whittles them out in little wooden statuettes. One such scene portrays Chief Wiggum getting attacked by a bear. This later comes true as a Funny Background Event.
    • After Gina slices up Bart's uniform, she turns her head to look at him as he is walking away.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Gina is a vicious and cruel delinquent, and is willing to lie to get Bart in trouble. But it turns out her anger is due to having no family. And when she learns what Bart will go through because of her, she confesses to forcing him to make a prison break.
  • Knife Nut: Gina.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Gina claims she can act all sad to make Bart take the blame for their escape. After seeing her act, Bart claims he is screwed.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Poor Gina.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: When Chief Wiggum arrested Bart, Bart tried to bribe his way out with a gift but Wiggum pointed to his badge, which read "Cash Bribes Only".
  • Tsundere: Gina full stop.
